Pool Covers

There are two types of pool covers: mesh and solid. There are automatic pool covers on the market, made of various materials. Pool covers serve many purposes, including keeping debris out of the pool, heating up the water, and minimizing the number of incidents of people or pets falling into the pool. It is important to remember that children may still fall into the pool, even when it is covered. In these cases, covers can interfere with a child’s ability to breathe. Refer to the tips presented in the pool safety section for information about protecting children near pools.
